Creative Back to School Fun with Epson Canada #Review

| September 12, 2019 | 10 Comments

Creative fun. This is not what many kids think about when the Back to School season rolls around. They are thinking about the work of the school year ahead. But why can’t this time of the year be for creative fun? Epson Canada wants to help create fun this Back to School season with their EcoTank ET-3710 All-in-One Cartridge-Free Supertank Printer! They asked if my family would be able to find creative fun during this Back to School with this printer, and I was on board to try it out!

The Epson ET-3710 is a printer that will make students and parents want to become more creative for this Back to School season. It provides families with cartridge-free printing. Instead, this printer uses super-sized ink tanks that will last up to two years. This is the same as using about 80 individual cartridges.

There are many benefits to having the ET-3710 at home to help your family be creative this school year. Take a look at a few of them:

  • Copy, scan, and print capabilities
  • 2.4” colour display
  • 150-sheet tray
  • Wireless print option from computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones
  • Voice-activated printing

Easy Set-up

Setting up our ET-3710 printer was easy. I followed the instructions to make sure my printer was aligned correctly and that the ink tanks were properly filled. Filling up the ink tanks was such a simple task. We received four bottles to add to our printer, and there was not fuss or mess. All we had to do was pour them into the tank to fill them.

Setting up the Wi-Fi to this printer was also simple. The whole process may take about 20 minutes to complete, but the convenience we are getting using this printer is well worth the wait!

Creative fun ahead!

There are so many creative things that can be done with the help of the ET-3710. From shadow boxes to gift bags, the sky’s the limit with the designs you can produce with this printer. The Epson iPrint app on my smartphone has a Creative Print section. It shares fun and easy craft ideas you can use to add a personal touch to your home.

My daughter recently had a birthday and she was over the moon about her special day. She loves art and is always creating somethings cute and colourful. Art makes her happy and she incorporates it into her school work. I wanted a simple and creative way to capture the magic of the day for her work space. I gained my inspiration from this photo.

My girl is all about the pink and cute images, so I designed a photo mat on a free design app and printed it off. This would also make for a great cover to a can or plastic tub to help create a reusable craft like a pencil holder for a desk.

I then used the Epson iPrint app to print the photo. It was so easy to perform this function. The quality of the image was really good. The colours were bright and vivid. With the correct photo paper, it took a few minutes to have a physical copy of the image I wanted to print.

I then glued the mat onto the photo border within the frame, then glued the photo to the mat. I assembled the frame and placed it on her desk to add more fun and flare to it. She saw it and was so happy with this addition to her work space.

Other great uses

I also love the capabilities the ET-3710 brings to our home. We are able to print printables our kids want to colour or use to improve on their reading, writing, and math skills. I can make copies of important documents we need for school or for work. Scanning documents also comes in handy. This printer makes it easy to accomplish. There is so much we can do with it in our home!

Creative fun made easy

We are so happy to have our Epson EcoTank ET-3710 All-in-One Cartridge-Free Supertank Printer to create Back to School fun for our family. It was simple to set-up and use. There are also so many different things that can be created with the help of this printer. Crafts and day-to-day work tasks can be done with ease with a few touches of a button. Not worrying about replacing cartridges is an added bonus to using this printer, too. We can’t wait to see what else we can create with our new printer!

    I love the fact that there are no more worries about ink. This might be one for me, I have a Samsung black and white laser printer/scanner which worked very well until they gave/sold their rights to HP and I’ve not been able to get it to scan easily in months – a right pain when it takes so long to scan.

  2. micheline says:

    My old printer is in the basement. I love how the Epson ET-3710 Printer is wireless and you can print from your phone.

  3. Debbie White-Beattie says:

    This sounds like a great printer especially when mine is an antique in tech terms

  4. Calvin says:

    Epson printers are quite well made, the one i’m using still works well, just have to clean the printer heads occasionally.

  5. Suzie B says:

    I have had Epson printers in the past and never regretted the purchase! They are definitely high quality

  6. Kristi says:

    My dad has an Epson printer and it’s been great. Mine unfortunately is not. But my next one will definitely be an Epson!

  7. Shirley says:

    This sounds like an awesome printer Its nice that you dont have to keep changing ink cartridges

  8. Stephanie LaPlante says:

    Sounds like a really good printer. I love how easy it looks to refill the ink.

  9. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    A wireless printer is the way of the future – who needs all these cables all over the place?

  10. Sandra Dufoe says:
